SGGEE Members - Please consider the advantage of using the Members Only search page where you can do partial name searches such as searching for "chu" in the middle of a name. The advanced search feature is not available on this page.

You can also search the Birth and Marriage databases.


Search Criteria

1. "Normal Search" is the default. It will find all occurrences of any given sequence of letters in a given search field. Thus, whether the sequence is a complete name or only a portion of a name, no matter where you seek the sequence, it will be found. For instance, if you type in [ jaeger ], you will find entries that include, "Jaeger, "Lobenjaeger", and "Geiger or Jaeger".

2. "Exact Match" will only find entries that include the exact letter sequence entered, and will not return any entry with additional spaces or other characters in the field searched.

3. There are no umlauts in the database (dotted vowels). Most of the umlauted letters have been replaced with ae, oe, or ue, but there are some names where the umlauted letter was changed to simply a, o, or u. You need, therefore, to do a search for both spellings of the name (ie., search for Konig as well as Koenig, etc.).

4. You do not need to enter data in all search boxes to find data. In fact, the more data you enter into the search fields, the fewer will be the results that will be returned. It is therefore possible that you will eliminate the data you seek if you narrow the search too much.

NOTES: You do not need to fill in every blank. You only need to type in the beginning part of a name or word for the search engine to find results (Advanced searches allow the search for the part anywhere in the word). Typing part of a word will return all of the derivatives; searching for the character “A” will return any word where the beginning letter is “A” .
